You really can feel that it all began here. Hard to walk around if you had a prank I think but worth the effort. The view over the Forum is amazing and a must.

It's very well worth climbing up the steps from the Forum to the top of the hill. There's a view over the Forum, 'Wedding cake' and further out over Rome.

Piazza Venezia / Ancient City
If all roads lead to Rome, then they all end here.
Piazza Venezia and the Ancient City are the very
epicenter of the Eternal City. Within a 360-degree
turn, Roman history unrolls in front of you, from its
ancient beginnings to its 21st century
transformations. Whether it’s those historical
playgrounds known as the Roman and Imperial Forums, or
the side-street shops, trattorie, and churches, this
